Romanian airline AirConnect has cancelled its flight between Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvár) and Budapest. The direct route between Cluj-Napoca and Budapest was removed from the Romanian airline’s booking system. The route was launched on 28 March.
AirConnect has decided to discontinue scheduled flights between Cluj-Napoca and Budapest, boardingpass.ro reports. The Romanian airline inaugurated this route on 28 March 2023 and operated two flights per week, every Tuesday and Saturday.
For technical and/or commercial reasons, some of the airline’s flights were merged with those between Budapest and Bucharest, while others were cancelled.
The last AirConnect flight between Cluj Napoca and Budapest was operated on 10 June 2023, and the one on 13 June was cancelled, according to Flightradar24.
However, flights between Bucharest and Budapest will continue to be operated twice a week, for which the booking system is currently open until the end of October, Budflyer, a Facebook page for aviation news, writes.
However, the Cluj-Napoca-Budapest line will not remain unserved. Aeroexpress will continue to operate flights three days a week.
This is the third time this summer that an airline has cancelled a previously announced new route in Budapest. Previously, Kuwait Airways and Dan Air both cancelled their planned flights to Budapest, Budflyer recalls.
